Can't get my Fn keys to work

I'm getting ready to give my laptop to my mother. Up until this point, it had been running gentoo and fedora. When I purchased this laptop, it came with vista home premium, which I created a system restore disk for and put linux on it. Well, I got vista reinstalled, installed all the needed drivers, and the function keys WILL NOT WORK. The only ones I really care about are the brightness keys, because those are very important to battery management.

It's a Sony VGN-CR120e. I really want the function keys to work, and I really want the multimedia keys to work. It is for my mother after all, and she wouldn't understand why they wouldn't work.

It's possibly your graphics card drivers, believe it or not. Even in BIOS, the brightness would not work for me in one case where I had the wrong graphics card drivers installed.
The brightness controls inside the operating system work, I just want the Fn brightness controls.
